Attorneys Who Care About Their Clients
A former construction accident victim describes the encouragement and support he received during a devastating time.
Client: And if it wasn’t for Daniel and Jeff, it [would’ve been] very difficult for me to carry on. They helped me a lot with encouraging me.
Interviewer: I hear that time and time again…not only are they very good lawyers, but also that they care about their clients, don’t they?
Client: They care a lot about their clients. And again, I’d really like to thank Daniel for all his encouragement and help through that case, because like I said, it was very devastating and frustrating.
